DELRAY BEACH, FL--(Marketwired - Mar 18, 2014) - Protext Mobility (OTCQB: TXTMD) (OTCQB: TXTM), a developer of innovative and trusted applications for the mobile communications market, is pleased to announce that the Company has executed a distribution agreement with Bay Ridge Honda, Bay Ridge Volvo, and Bay Ridge Volkswagen, one of New York's premier Auto-Dealership groups. This auto dealer group sold in excess of 6,000 vehicles last year, including Honda, Volkswagen and Volvo. Pursuant to the agreement, Protext's OBD-II distracted driving solution will be marketed and sold through all three of the Bay Ridge dealerships in the NYC Tri-State area. The DriveAlert product, a text blocking and distracted driving solution aimed at curbing the distracted driving epidemic, will be sold directly to consumers with collateral marketing and product information displayed prominently at the welcome desk and throughout the showroom floor.
Steve Berman, CEO of Protext Mobility, commented, "We're thrilled to partner up with Bay Ridge to offer our premium distracted driving solution through all their dealerships and directly to their established customer base. Bay Ridge Honda, Bay Ridge Volvo and Bay Ridge Volkswagen have a long history in the Tri-State area and are well known in the local markets as a trusted auto group that has serviced generations of families. Their long-standing relationship with their community makes them a perfect fit for Protext to partner with in the crusade against distracted driving."
"We have worked very closely with Protext in developing a program which we believe accomplishes several goals," said Robert Sabbagh, President of Bay Ridge Honda. "Being in our business, we are pitched new products everyday and have the opportunity to see almost every aftermarket product there is. It is important to us as a company that products we partner with not only satisfy the bottom line, but also promote the safety and well being of our customers, and we feel that the Protext distracted driving solution is one of the few products to fit this criteria. We are known for being very family-oriented, and believe offering a product like DriveAlert to our customers is not only great for business but also tremendous for the community to help keep our roads safe from the dangers associated with distracted driving," Mr. Sabbagh went on to say.
Mr. Berman concluded his comments by saying, "We have designed a business model for this particular vertical market that is scalable. Our solution offers dealerships a highly profitable after-market add-on that addresses the distracted driving epidemic and allows them to incorporate Protext's product at the point of purchase of a vehicle.
